Last week I finished the mixing of "The Easter Concert" and so I can tell you some details and give you more informations about this performance:
The klangbilder opens an arpeggiator tune that I've called "Open Glass", wihich is dedicated to Philip Glass amd Larry Fast. It is followed by "Melanchton II", a short piece, performed with Peter Chillvers "Air"-App, featuring the beautiful voice (...not of Christa Fast, but...) of Irish vocalist Sandra O’Neill. After this you can listen to a 20-minutes version of my "Six iPhones" (...which is in a superb sound quality).
Then you can listen to the huge "Music for Aurora Nights" Liveversion which is about 30 minutes long and I played this tune by using only the Generative Music App "Bloom" by Brian Eno and Peter Chilvers. This is followed by "The Easter Egg" which is a medley of ancient VELVET UNIVERSE music and some newer sounds for which I used the "Sunrizer" App on the iPhones and feat. Peter Vogels Fairlight CMI App on one iPad. The ambient sounds have been recorded in Wales by using a Kunstkopf system.
When "The Easter Egg" is gone and the blackbirds are singing you walk through the gloomy "Lichtenhain", performed with another Eno/Chillvers App called "Trope". At the end of "The Easter Concert" I do a performance, called "Beste Landung" (which I called "Beste Landung, because the rhythm of the sound hammerd the words "bes-te lan-dung...bes-te Lan-rung..." and so on in my brain). Therefore I use a short drumsample loop and I only change the faders of the parametric equalizers of my two YAMAHA......livemixers - that's all.
